The one and only Dustin Hoffman, the fearless risk-taker with a million faces, was born in Los Angeles, California on 8/8/1937.

Hoffman breathed life to 64 movies in his busy career, including “"Midnight Cowboy (1969)", “Kramer vs. Kramer (1979)", “The Graduate (1967)", “Straw Dogs (1971)", and “Billy Bathgate (1991)".

Dustin Hoffman was nominated for the Academy Award for a total of 7 times in 1968, 1970, 1975, 1980, 1983, 1989, and 1998 and won it in 1980 and 1989 for “Kramer vs. Kramer (1979)" and “Rain Man (1988)".

Here are some trivia facts about Dustin Hoffman:

1) At one point, he was almost offered the role of Michael Corleone in The Godfather (1972) and Rick Deckard in Blade Runner (1982).

2) During his struggling days in New York City as an unkown actor, he shared the same house with two other unknown actors - Robert Duvall and Gene Hackman. Hoffman once said “I lived below the official American poverty line until I was 31. "

3) In the Little Big Man (1970) he broke a Guinness “age differential played by the same actor in a film" record by playing the same character at ages 17 and 121.

My favorite Hoffman quote is: “Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to seduce me. " (As Benjamin Braddock in The Graduate, 1967).
